Chorus, orchestra perform for a cause

  • Updated: April 6, 2013 - 11:41 PM

The Woodbury Chorus & Orchestra comes home to King of Kings Lutheran Church to perform in concert at 4 p.m. on Sunday, April 7.

The community is invited to attend. There is no charge for this concert. Donations will be accepted for the Woodbury Christian Cupboard.

This arts organization is unique in the Twin Cities. Each member is a volunteer, including the directors, and each is dedicated to helping those in need. Their primary mission is to contribute to food shelves in the areas where they perform, through proceeds of freewill offerings taken at their concerts.

Members also enjoy sharing great music with their audiences, and most of them have had extensive experience in school, community and church musical groups.

King of Kings is located at 1583 Radio Drive in Woodbury. For more information or directions call 651-738-3110 or go to

‘Seussical’ to open on April 18

Tickets are on sale for the Lakeshore Players Theatre production of “Seussical the Musical,” running Fridays through Sundays from April 18 to May 19 at the theater at 4820 Stewart Av. in White Bear Lake.

In this romp through Dr. Seuss’ much loved stories, the Cat in the Hat tells the tale of Horton the elephant, who hears a cry for help coming from a small speck of dust and promises to rescue it because “a person’s a person, no matter how small.” Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family and community triumph.

Tickets are $20, or $18 for seniors and students. To order, go to, or order by phone at 651-429-5674.
